We made the cut in Wanderlust!

Cross Hill Lodge and Domes featured earlier this year in Wanderlust Magazines ’10 of the best eco-friendly stays in New Zealand that will get you back to nature’ lists and to say we’re thrilled would be an understatement!

Here’s what Wander lust had to say about our stunning premium geodomes.

10 of the best eco-friendly stays in New Zealand that will get you back to nature

Whether going off-grid in a glass pod, staying on a working farm or living among the trees, these eco-friendly escapes will get you back to nature…


Plush geodomes scatter the shoreline of Hawea, one of the lesser-visited lakes wrapping Wanaka. It’s certainly a setting designed to charm the camera lens, thanks to the area’s U-shaped valleys carved tens of thousands of years ago by departing glaciers. The domes offer plenty of home comforts, with floor-to-ceiling windows, plush double beds and even a small kitchenette. It’s a cosy affair, and the camp’s lodge even dishes up meals fresh from the farm. A few relics of the area’s gold-mining past survive on the slopes above, but the appeal here is nature. It’s out paddleboarding on the quiet lake waters or relaxing outside in a wood-fired outdoor hot tub that Cross Hill earns its restorative reputation.

Well, we tend to agree with this wonderfully wanderlust description.

Thanks Wanderlust! We love our domes as much as you do!
